Pat's Knitting and Quilting
April 12, 2012
Picture overload, but I couldn't help it - I LOVE these mittens!
Divided the braid into warm and cool colors
and spun 425 yards (102 grams) of regular 3 ply fingering wt. yarn
for Zinnia Mittens - Here is the back - such a pretty colorwork pattern!
and here is the front - also click for pic of thumb/side of mitten
I just love everything about them from the little picot hemmed cuff to the pretty little thumb flower - to me, mittens don't get much better than this! Watching the subtle handspun color changes was so entertaining (I'm obviously easily entertained!) that I needed no prodding to keep knitting.
Pattern: Zinnia Mittens by Mary Ann Stephens
The fit is perfect!
